This past weekend was one for the record books. Nashville received 13 1/2" of rain for Saturday and Sunday, we received around 10"-12" in our county. Thank goodness we live up the ridge from the Nashville area. We had lots of water pooled around the gardens and yard but nothing that caused a major problem. Finally late yesterday afternoon the rain quit for a while and the sun came out, it was a very welcome sight.

more beans floated away in the 2nd garden also
It is going to be a busy week, thank goodness the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the 70s and 80s until Friday. We surely need the sunshine to clean up and replant.
Late Sunday afternoon our local news channels were able to get the helicopters up and over Nashville and the surrounding area. It was one thing to see pictures during the weekend of all the flooding but quite another to see the video from the helicopters showing how massive the flooding really was. Our hearts go out to all the families and businesses that are having to clean up and rebuild after this weekend and unfortunately most of them do not have flood insurance.
